Why it became so messy is probably because we were so damn excited to try a drink that doesn’t actually exist - be it only in the mind of millions of children and adults around the world. I think the most exciting thing is that it started off as a little idea, and then all of a sudden all of us knew about butter beer before it actually existed. And ever since, culinary nerds like me have been trying to recreate the mythical brew.
And when we first tasted it… it actually tasted the way I expected!
I’m just going to gush here a bit about how much I LOVE the Harry Potter series – both the books and the movies – and I cannot WAIT to see the new movie tomorrow with Darren. Yay for movie dates!
There are a multitude of recipes online for butterbeer, and a lot of them would taste awesome! I was really impressed with this one – thank you KC for letting me know about this one. The best thing about this version is it uses local Bundaberg Ginger Beer, brewed not 4 hours north of Brisbane.
Pour some ginger beer and a few tablespoons of cream into a jug (only about half full) then froth it up with the milk steam wand on your espresso machine. If you want a cool drink, froth it for a short time, if you want a warm drink froth it like you would milk for a cappucino. Pour it into a glass (we really should have used steins!).
